One Pot Spaghetti with Rocket Leaves

Spaghetti with rocket leaves: Delicious and quick one pot spaghetti pasta with peppery fresh rocket leaves and capers. So apart from elaborate dals, roti, sabzi, rice and all sometimes I love to make simple and filling pasta or similar dishes and my whole family loves that.

I think we ladies spent a big time in the kitchen making three time meals. I think to get a break we definitely need to cook some easy-peasy dishes and I found some, I mark them as favourites and do make them once in a while and have relaxed dinner with family.

This one pot pasta dish so simple to put together and tastes amazing. The rocket leaves give a peppery flavour and taste to the dish and make it more inviting and yummy. These leaves have an acquired taste and this is a nice way to incorporate them in the diet along with salads after all they are salad leaved..
